Been wanting to go here for years and was not disappointed. Small but filled with many L&H collectibles. Please don't go expecting to see a lot of memorabilia from the boys but there are many fine items donated by fans from all over. The lady behind the counter was very helpful and informative. She also told us where to find... More

although the festival itself was rained out, the museum was the highlight of our trip. It's worth the day's drive to see everything that is there

We have passed the sign on the interstate a few times and decided to break up a ten hour drive with a stop over. It was great. While Laurel and Hardy were well before my time, and not as popular as another well known duo, it was great to see how the town had come together to celebrate a son.... More

The Museum was really interesting. It told all about Laurel & Hardy and where they are from. The lady working there was full of great information! We got to watch film. They even have some props for you to wear and then take a picture with an old car. It was a lot of fun. Great attraction to visit!

We were in Augusta for the day and decided to detour to Harlem to see this museum. Even though their website shows them to be open on Wednesdays, they were closed. I don't know about the museum, but they certainly need to update their website!
